Gone are the days when the garage was simply used to park the car or store seasonal items. It can now be the center of activity, a workshop, and/or a gathering place if you’d like. Great garages come in different packages depending on your needs! Consider adding storage cabinets—they now make them specifically for the garage to add style along with functionality. Garage kitchens also aren’t unheard of, and they often include a wash sink and keg-a-rater for parties. The garage fridge might contain adult drinks and snacks, and you can mount a TV on the wall, so no one misses the game while doing an oil change. Sometimes, the garage ceiling is raised to install a car lift to make that oil change more convenient. Our point? The garage has evolved beyond basics and into a fully functional space for your home.
